Morrison: Djokovic could play at Aus Open 2023

"I'm not going to precondition any of that or say anything that would not enable the ministers to make the various calls they have to make," Morrison told 2GB radio host Ben Fordham on Monday (January 17) as Djokovic was en route to Dubai.

"It does go over a three-year period, then there is the opportunity for them to return under the right circumstances and that would be considered at the time."

The world number one player left Australia late on Sunday (January 16) after the Federal Court upheld a government decision to cancel his visa, capping days of drama over the country's COVID-19 entry rules and his unvaccinated status.

Under immigration law, Djokovic cannot be granted another visa for three years unless Australia's immigration minister accepts there are compelling or compassionate reasons.
